 Our Description


St. Bernadette of Lourdes - DVD

A wonderful new feature film from Navis Pictures on the famous story of 14 yr. old St. Bernadette, her life in a poor, humble village in France and her visions in 1858 of a “Beautiful Lady” that would forever change the lives of countless people, and establish Lourdes as the most visited Catholic shrine in the world. The unique aspect of this lovely film is that it features Catholic children & youth in all the roles, with 166 in the whole cast. Very well produced and acted. Our Lady’s timeless message of “penance, conversion, and love” is as much needed now as it was then. The youth in the film give it a purity and sweetness that the whole family will love. Featuring stunning locations and a rich musical score, this film is an inspiration for young and old alike.

Profile
Oldest of six children in a very poor family headed by Francois and Louise Casterot. Hired out as a servant from age 12 to 14. Shepherdess. On 11 February 1858, around the time of her first Communion, she received a vision of the Virgin; her own account of it is in the Readings section below. She received seventeen more in the next five months, and was led to a spring of healing waters. She moved into a house with the sisters of Nevers at Lourdes where she lived, worked, and learned to read and write. The sisters cared for the sick and indigent, and at age 22 they admitted Bernadette into their order since she was both. Always sick herself, and often mistreated by her superiors, she died with a prayer for Mary's aid. Since the appearances of Mary to young Bernadette in 1858, more than 200 million people have visited the shrine of Lourdes.
